The gluten-free diet in Hong Kong may seem to have come out of the blue but in fact gluten intolerance is becoming increasingly prevalent. We are now exposed to more and more gluten in our diet compared to a decade ago. Our systems are unable to handle the overload and this is where the gluten-free diet came about. Gluten intolerance has been linked to many health issues including IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), eczema, and other auto-immune issues. Many are adopting a gluten-free diet with a simple intention to be healthier.
Food for Life shops in Hong Kong has chosen the healthier gluten-free options as not all gluten-free items are healthy. Our bean pastas for example, are not only gluten-free, they are high in fiber and protein and don’t spike your blood sugar levels that other rice or quinoa based gluten-free pastas would.
Food for Life continues to expand our range of gluten-free items hoping to support those on this gluten-free diet. Whatever your gluten-free needs are in Hong Kong, Food for Life aims to support this lifestyle with your health in mind.
